Artist's description:

This vibrant early work was one of my first rough figurative works, almost entirely painted with my fingers. It was created around the time when I realized that I wanted to do figurative work, and that I liked painting with my fingers. I still paint with my fingers quite a bit, along with palette knives and very small brushes. This is also one of my first redheads. It's about being emotionally and physically spent, and how sometimes that feels good rather than bad because you know that you've done all that you can do or given all that you can give. It's about love. This piece comes with a signed copy of one of my four novels.

I'm an American figurative expressionist painter. I spent the first half of my adult life writing fiction, and then began painting in 2008. I'm the author of five books, including four novels. My art often includes a strong sense of character and story. My primary subject is the complexity of women.

My work is influenced by fashion photography and a childhood spent immersed in the high-end interior design industry. My mother was a successful designer whose work was featured in publications such as Architectural Digest and Southern Living.

To better understand some of the underlying themes and emotional content that influence my art, read my (almost) memoir, Please Love Me, as well as my other books. It can be found on Amazon, along with my other titles.
